Wednesday Pumpkin Painting

Happy Wednesday!

So once again I have a layout that I created just for me.  I broke into my stash once again and pulled out  some Bella Blvd and a ton of different embellishments from Bella Blvd, Little Yellow Bicycle, Elles Studio and my latest addiction- badges from a flair for buttons.    I had a blast with layout because I just layered everything from my paper to my embellies.  As I stated in a previous post ( and sorry if you are getting sick of hearing it) but I have made a pledge to myself that I am not buying any new products until my stash is reduced.  I have NO more room in my paper files.  So it is very freeing to be able to use a ton of paper and a ton of embellishments on my projects.  I love it!!  I was really happy at how this turned out! 


supplies
paper- chipboard- stickers- bella blvd
fabric buttons and embellishments- LYB
tags- Elle's studio
flair- a flair for buttons
stamps- ali edwards
sewing machine

I am really cruising with my work lately.  My mojo is flowing once again and I am loving exploring different techniques and styles.  I love it when I am having fun with my hobby!  I am totally out of my rut and having a ball.  Do you ever get in a rut or just feel out of sorts with your paper crafting?  How do you work yourself out of it? 

Thanks so much for stopping by today.  I will be back tomorrow with a new project.  See you then! Have a wonderful and crafty day!

I'm in a rut now. And that no buying thing? I fail. Horribly. I see shiny new stuff and must have it. I love this line. Need to dig it out and use it.

Beautiful page, Mary Pat! I love the little cluster of embellishments and cute little googly-eyed pumpkins. You are rocking your stash. No reason to buy more. :)

good for you for sticking to it and using your stash. It's not easy when there's so much new stuff out there.

This is amazing, you really have a way with embellishments! I've just come out of a little slump and am also working through my stash and scraps. It's fun!

Love this page!! I need to put a halt on buying and start using my stash again, too! :) I also need to get out of my funk! Love that your scrappy mojo is on a roll! :)

Steph said...

Great page. I love the background paper.

I love the background paper. I have yet to get into a scrapbooking runt. I find that it helps me break out of my writing runt.

Annette said...

Christina said...

This is adorable-I love all of the layering. Some of my favorite Bella papers!!

Tammy said...

Fun layout! I love the layers and the stitching. My ruts never last that long. I usually just wait it out and before long, I'm itching to get started again! :)

Juliana said...

Good for you! I have been trying to do the same thing with my stash lately! It is quite liberating to just use what I have and to not worry about running out of something. I am focusing on making do with what I have!!! Then once it's downsized I can replenish!!!
You created a fabulous layout and I love the mix of products! Those flair buttons add such a great touch!!!

Becky said...

This is super cute! I love the woodgrain paper. I feel like I've been in a rut for months! Ha!

Katie said...

This layout is awesome! I love all of the layering, and the pictures are adorable!

When I'm in a rut, I either walk away, or make little things. Now my problem is I want to craft all the time, but am so busy that I can't!

Jennifer Grace said...

This is such a fun page, I love the wood paper, and all the layered embellies! x

Dawn said...

I'm in a rut - hence no blog posts ... again!

The layout is great - love that wood grain paper!

Amy said...

Love the fall colors in the layout. Yes, I get in ruts and I usually give it time and try sketches, etc. to get out. Lovely layout.

Tracy said...

Another great layout.
I very rarely get in a rut, but I if I do, I like to just check out what my blogging friends are up to ;)

Izzy Anderson said...

Love love love that photo matting. Such a fun look! Must scraplift. :) Adorable photos. Really cute page. You rocked your stash!

~Tammy~ said...

I have so much STASH it's not funny! I am loving all the new papers out there, but I have to reduce what I have! Being a cardmaker primarily makes that harder as I don't use up as much paper as fast!

Love the photo matting and another fantastic layout! Way to use what you had! It looks amazing!
